Tom Glover (Compère)
Westcountry comedian Tom Glover is a 'firm audience favourite' (Chortle) with a set full of hilarious stories of family life and tales of living in the south west. Tom began his comedy career by making the finals of the South West Comedian of the Year competition and has gone from strength to strength ever since, most recently touring his award nominated debut show 'A Glover not a Fighter' at venues across the country. His first solo effort was nominated for Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival before performing to packed rooms throughout it's Edinburgh Fringe run. In the same year Tom was also a finalist in the prestigious Petfringe Comedian of the Year, the biggest prize in comedy, and did tour support for TV favourite Stephen Bailey. Tom has developed a loyal following across the south west due to a series of long running MC residencies and has developed a knack of winning over any crowd with his tales of life on the outside and his observations on the minutiae of the everyday. And if that’s not your thing he also does funny accents and pulls silly faces.
Many will have heard or seen him on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Good News or on BBC R4’s Can’t Tell Nathan Caton Nothing.
He is one of the most exciting comedians on the scene, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the country and on numerous TV and radio shows. He delivers a delightful and charming blend of personal and political comedy, attracting much comment and praise:
A comic well worth catching any chance you can’ – One4review
‘Funny, clever and a pleasure to listen to.’ – Broadway Baby
‘A charming and convincing operator’ – The List).
James Ellis is a rising star in the UK comedy scene, with sharp observational humour and clever punchlines that have won him rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. Rooted in everyday life, he has a knack for finding the funny in the mundane and in 2021 was named South Coast Comedian of the Year, and was a regional finalist for the BBC New Comedy Award.
Louise Leigh wanted to do comedy when she was sixteen, but it took her until her forties to get around to it! She delivers daftness, deftness and some brilliant physical comedy and you’ll never think the same way again about shaving your legs.
